Tour guide on the bike ride was very good. Informative. He did say the ride to Tiburon was only 45 minutes and essentially one road to follow. That was not really the case. It took us a lot longer and it would have been helpful if he had pointed out which roads to keep an eye out for once we went off of the 8 bike trail. Other than that it was amazing! Highly recommend doing this while in San Francisco.

Loved this excursion! We tried the electric bikes our first time and that made it easy to get up the many hills along the way. I would recommend this excursion! Truly amazing sights to be seen by bicycle!

A must do. Best way to see San Fransisco on bike however I recommend the electric bike option as while I'm a reasonably fit 40 something its very hilly and this extra push going up hills made it for me. We took the option of the ferry back which goes round Alcatraz and saved us a half day visit as we got really close photos. Tour guide was lovely and handled all ages however it may have been even better with a smaller group.

Great tour! Host was excellent! Only gripe was the agressive cyclists on the bridge, these mad men in lycra assume they own The Bridge! Worth doing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

Everything went smoothly and were given advice for going off track also.
Would warn anyone though that the return ferry's are an absolute nightmare to handle - chaos is understatement! No warning of this and annoyed as stood outside in packed area for close to an hour.
Actual tour was very very good, although could quite easily do it yourself and hire bikes for the day

I really enjoyed my time! This bike ride was refreshing and reflective. We stopped for the restroom and to get coffee on the way to the bridge. Perfect weather!
